This Is our Imperial Stout that we age in conditioning tanks with oak staves. This adds a classic character of old world aging with out the Bourbon tones. This black ale is about 12% alc. and very rich in roasted and chocolate malt tones. Velvety smooth and able to be aged for years.

As the bottle states their goal was to recreate a dark cacao chocolate bar and they did just that. Nice bitter chocolate profile throughout.....only disappointment is the clean nose as I'd like more chocolate and char/roast/coffee

2014 bottle.

A: pours very, very dark. one of the darkest brews I have poured in a while. head is similar in hue.

S: aroma is full of chocolate. a lot of chocolate. dark and sweet. wisps of heat. some coffee.

T: mild coffee flavor. the roast is bitter. not unpleasantly, but boarding the line. booze. lingering bitterness is actually balanced by a lingering sweet flavor. good typical stout flavors with no standouts in any particular direction (coffee, chocolate, roast, etc.).

M: slick from all this bitter dark flavor. lingering mouthfeel. full bodied.

D: a rich and full stout, but no particulars that make this outstanding, but no flaws either. a good drinker that should be procured by big stout fans. fairly priced. not sure what time would do to this, but not sure if I would want to find out.

I believe this is a new batch released in late 2014, December. (Purple cap)


A Pours pitch black with a small head that diminished to clustered bubbles residing on the rim of the glass. They remain for some time.


S Cocoa and some alcohol heat, as it warms the alcohol heat blends in and is not as noticeable. Soon begins to smell like a brownie.


T Big wave of roasted malt followed by a slightly bitter chocolate that finishes clean. No taste of heat detected in the smell. The chocolate flavor lingers around very pleasantly. As per the label “like a chocolate bar au naturel”


M Slick and smooth, light carbonation is perfect. The beer is aged with oak staves that I would assume lead to the overall smoothness.


O The bottle says you can age it for years but with how it is drinking fresh I can’t see why you would want to do that. Damn tasty stout for the abv, no artificial flavors in any way shape or form. Just traditional ingredients; malts and hops for the win.
